COVID-19 Update

To All our Friendly Harbor Members, Supporters, Potential Members and Others in Need of Support,

We hope this update finds you all healthy.  Friendly Harbor was able to open the center for a few weeks in October and November; it was wonderful to see everyone who came by!  Unfortunately, we feel it is necessary at this time to close the doors here at 2713 N. Grand for a period of time in support of the Governor’s request.  We will reevaluate our status on November 21st and post an update.  In the meantime…        

Help us spread the word and combat feelings of isolation, helplessness, or fear.  Let those who may need us know that our support services are available.  We are available by phone and by appointment.  Staff may be on-site and available for one-to-one coaching; please call ahead to check.  We can be reached at (719-545-2564).  If no one is immediately available at that number or if it is after business hours, please call our Warm Line (719-621-7815) to speak with a Peer Specialist.  We are now holding virtual groups and would love to see you on Zoom.  Check out our video-messaging on Facebook (Friendly Harbor Community Center) and look for group times on our website calendar ( and Facebook page.  

If you need to speak to someone but a Peer Specialist is not available, we strongly recommend you use the 24Hour Crisis Living Room number. 
Peer Specialist Warm Line: 719-621-7815.
To Ask for an Appointment: 719-545-2564; if you do not get a reply, please call the Warm Line

Stay safe, stay healthy and reach out if you need help!

Who We Serve

We are here to serve all adults in Southern Colorado who have a mental health or a substance use condition, or who know and care about someone with such a condition (such as family, other supporters and community organizations).

If you want to talk informally about mental health or substance issues without concerns about confidentiality or stigmatization, we are the place for you.  Maybe you are wondering if you have a clinical depression or if your anxiety is ‘normal.’  Maybe you are having thoughts that disturb you, but don’t want to talk with your doctor about them.  We welcome you to visit with one of our peer specialists.

What We Provide

The Friendly Harbor Community Center actively works to counter the effects of stigma by supporting recovery of its members, and speaking to and collaborating with family members, supporters of those with a mental condition, organizations such as Pueblo County Department of Social Services, Probation Department, Colorado Mental Health Institute at Pueblo and Health Solutions mental health center, and District Court Judges, Pueblo County citizens at large, and others.

The Friendly Harbor provides Peer Recovery Coaching by trained peer specialists with lived experience and recovery. Our Peer Recovery Coaches offer a non-judgmental ear, confidential problem-solving discussions, and emotional support as clients tackle difficult issues.
